Instant messaging firm WhatsApp today announced a major update to help its users “connect in the groups that matter to them”. The global rollout of the Communities feature will allow users to have multiple groups together under one roof and let them organise group conversations on the platform with the “level of privacy and security not found anywhere else”, it said.
Mark Zuckerberg, Founder and CEO, Meta, announced the global rollout of Communities on WhatsApp on Thursday.
“Today we’re launching Communities on WhatsApp. It makes groups better by enabling sub-groups, multiple threads, announcement channels, and more. We’re also rolling out polls and 32 person video calling too. All secured by end to end encryption so your messages stay private,” he said.
